Former Uruguay defender Hugo De León has charged players to fight until the end when they face Ghana in the final group game in the World Cup.
After two games in Group H, Uruguay have managed just a point after suffering defeat against Portugal on Monday afternoon.
Meanwhile, Ghana earned an important win to boost their chances of progressing to the round of 16.
The Black Stars inflicted a 3-2 win over the Asian giants to boost their chances of qualifying to the knockout phase.
The four-time African champions must avoid defeat against Uruguay to book a spot in the Round of 16.
Ahead of their clash with Ghana, the former Uruguay international has charged the players to play until the end of the game.
“Silence, all together and play until the end. 90 more minutes,” he tweeted.
The 2016 European champions are currently on the summit of Group H with six points, ahead of Ghana, who have three.
Meanwhile, Uruguay and South Korea both have one point each ahead of the final group games on Friday.
Ghana were denied a semifinal berth at the World Cup courtesy of a Luis Suarez handball incident in the quarterfinals of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
The former Liverpool and Barcelona forward prevent a goal-bound header from Ghana’s Dominic Adiyiah in the final minute of extra time at the Soccer City Stadium in Johannesburg.
Suarez essentially produced a save on the line worthy of a goalkeeper and he was shown a straight red card as a result.
Ghana were also awarded a penalty, but Asamoah Gyan’s attempt from 12 yards crashed into the crossbar, which resulted in Suarez going mental on the touchline and sent the game to a shootout.
Uruguay won the penalty shoot-out to progress to the semifinals with Luis Suarez celebrated for his demonic act.
